Seeking premium cocktails in Westchester

JMF | Dec 15, 2008 11:27 AM

Are there any fine bars/restaurants with a real cocktail program in Westchester? Mixologists crafting fine libations with care? Places along the lines of NYC places like PDT, Death & Co, Pegu Club, Little Branch, Angel Share, etc.

Somewhere when I ask for a Manhattan they'll ask what type of rye, what proportion of Antica Formula Vermouth, and what type of bitters; and they'll have a whole range of bitters like Fee's Peychaud's, Regan's, Bitter Truth, Bitterman's, etc. A place that knows what a Vieux Carré is and how to make it, or a Ramos Gin Fizz. A place that squeezes the juice fresh and makes their own falernum or orgeat.

So is there?

Not some place charging $16 for a regular martini made with regular gin and vermouth, or some neon green cocktail in a glass the size of your head, but a real cocktail bar making exquisite drinks.
